History Talks

In recent years records of many meetings have moved away from print proceedings to Web collections of presentations, but meeting Web pages are not always permanently maintained. The intent of the History Talks page of the Working Group is to provide an ongoing record in pdf format of talks on radio astronomy history. If you have radio astronomy history talks to contribute, please contact Ellen Bouton, NRAO Archivist.

For history talks presented at WG sessions at IAU and URSI General Assemblies, see the WG Meeting Reports page.

Entire meeting proceedings (in date order):

Individual history talks (alphabetical by presenter):
